A Candle for the Children
[ a song by K.Harrington]
this Christmas light a candle for the children
and put a few more angels on the tree.
this Christmas say a prayer for people willing
to protect innocent lives in this land of the free.
it seems like long ago and early one morning
i heard my boys just breathing in their beds.
then i stood on a porch staring at a picture
of a fireman with a little girl among the dead.
now as i pour my self another coffee
i think that i might go out for a walk
right now i'm gonna turn off this damn t.v.
i can not bear to hear the news people talk.
[1st verse is chorus]
